Are we SO afraid of the PC mods, that we have to veil an appropriate defense to an obvious slam (duh) by the collective poster (subee)??
I dunno. I wasn't really taken with the post stating that my anti-union remark was "cheap" or "sophomoric" either. But who knows how I came across; it's easy to misunderstand words in print.
I didn't feel like I was tiptoeing around the fence on that one because it can be difficult to present an unpopular opinion. I used to believe in organizations like NYSNA, thought they were the greatest thing since sliced bread. But they have no teeth.
So I have to wonder how many of us throw our money away on organizations like this--unions, nurses' associations--and get nothing back but the same lousy working conditions that perpetuate the shortage in the first place.
Then some clown pulls a stunt like this.
Am I the only one who sees the irony of a man running what is predominantly a woman's organization? Am I the only one who wonders how he got away with so much for so long?
Doesn't anyone else see the s/s that it's because the organization itself is too imbued with supporting the status quo to make any significant changes?
Or am I just being cynical, seeing yet another prime example of nurses throwing their potential power away. Again.
